The Saints allow the third fewest points to fantasy tight ends, but they have not faced a ton of teams with a dominant fantasy tight end. Olsen is still a TE1 this week.
Miami is just 15th against fantasy tight ends and Gates has been a touchdown machine in what has been an amazing bounce back season.
